Disability Studies @CDSLeeds this week…

Professor Anna Lawson has been appointed as a member of the Disability Committee of the Equality and Human Rights Commission. The Disability Committee is a statutory decision-making committee which plays a key role in the Commission’s governance and it performs crucial work in tackling discrimination and promoting equality of opportunity for disabled people. Significant aspects of its work over the next year will be contributing to development of the Commission’s next strategic plan, supporting delivery of Is Britain Fairer? – the Commission’s periodic review of Britain’s progress on equality and human rights, and informing the UK’s forthcoming examination under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People.
